Nora Roberts - the world's greatest storyteller. Abigail Lowery has a dark and terrifying secret. Aged just sixteen, she witnessed a shocking mafia murder. Narrowly escaping with her life, she was forced to leave her old identity - even her real name - behind for good. Fifteen years later Abigail is still hiding from the world - a semi-recluse in the quiet, rural town of Bickford, Arkansas. She has convinced herself that this is all she needs: peace, safety...and her faithful guard dog Bert. Perhaps now, at last, she can stop running. But Brooks Gleason, the local chief of police, has other ideas. Abigail intrigues him - and he'd like nothing better than to break through the walls she has built around herself. His persistence and determination to uncover the truth is unsettling, exciting - and dangerous. One way or another, it will change both their lives for ever.
This was one of Nora Roberts' better stand alone stories. The reader can empathize with the heroine's utterly lonely existence. And the hero was genuinely likeable.
There were great creative plot twists to extricate Elizabeth from her dangerous situation. Plus, Roberts again includes a great dog!

I loved it
Nora Roberts is one of the best writers today!
In this effort, she has excelled. This book is not part of one of her superb series, it stands alone. This is the recounting of a 16 year old girl's tale of her life AFTER she makes the mistake of forging IDs to get herself and a girlfriend into one of the hottest clubs in her city. She witnesses the murder of 2 people and agrees to testify against the Russian Mafia - and then......being sought by the mob and the law... epic!.
